This list can be used for not only birth workers, but birthing peoples may want to gather these items for themselves!
The items I have marked as a rental means they are items doulas should not necessarily be using on a client, as doulas are not medical professionals, but they are items that most clients need/want, therefore it’s a great idea to rent them out during prenatals/births, rather than the clients having to purchase their own!
You may click any of the supplies you are interested in, to be taken to a link of the product brand that we have used, and recommend!
